2015 Tour of Remodeled Homes

Every year, the Greensboro Builders Association's Remodelers Council showcase the very best work in home renovations. The professionally remodeled homes include a vast variety that ranges from kitchens to bathrooms or outdoor living spaces to complete renovations. This year, the tour included twelve different properties six of which underwent full renovations.
The tour took three days Friday through Sunday, so I will try to condense as much as possible in each post.
So let's start with the Modern mid-century home executed by Gary Jobe Builder, Inc.

 The home owners main goal was to preserve the home structural bones while indulging in some modern updates. The objective was to renovate without losing the the home's original style and character.

This huge island is a chef's dream
The cabinets are sleek and shiny with beautiful hardware
The family room simple but functional incorporates that 50s vibe with the wall as a focal point and the hand-picked furniture
The outdoor living space combines shady and sunny areas with a lot of entertaining space

The bathroom featured this fun and unexpected element to balance the straight lines provided by the vanity, the sconces, and the tiles
The casita has this super original kitchen with orange cabinets that replicate the front door style

The bedrooms are large with tons of natural light 
They opted for a neutral palette with pops of orange here and there
This historical renovation turned out absolutely fabulous. I think the interior design was probably a little challenging since all the 50s original furniture was built back then for small spaces because obviously the lifestyle was different. So while I was touring the house, I was thinking about how difficult of a task probable was to work with the scale of those large rooms and the smaller vintage furniture. I really liked all the pieces that were chosen and the color palette that was carried out throughout the entire home.  Now, I do have to say that as soon as to walk by the property it doesn't look like a "historical home". It actually looks more than a brand-new construction. It was very difficult to me to find the "character" that remained from the original home. But that is just me, I'm sure that the owners are more than thrilled to call that 50s oasis home.

Stay tuned for more beautiful photos!
